He Brings me Flour: Recap

Happy Tuesday!

It’s me, Julia, checking in while J&M are off “coasting” their way to relaxation. While they are off taking a well deserved rest at Cedar Point, I thought I would start the day right- with a full recap of the Nashville edition of Walk Through a Wedding with J&M. We brought you a sneak peek right after we got back and now that Style Me Pretty has featured it, we’re going to go ahead with the big reveal!

Ever since we took Justin & Mary’s “Spread The Love” Tour through Nashville, TN last February, we have been looking for a reason to go back. Then, when J&M worked on the Style Me Pretty wedding with Chase Rivers and Sarah True this Spring that sealed the deal: The next “Walk Through a Wedding” workshop HAD to be in music city!! And it HAD to feature biscuits from The Loveless Cafe. We started our design board with biscuits in mind and after brainstorming a few more ideas, Mary had an epiphany. In the movie, Stranger Than Fiction, Mr. Crick (an IRS agent) brings Ms. Pascal (the baker)… flours. And our theme was born!! I mean come on, how cute is that? He brought her FLOURS!!! A design board quickly followed.

We love a detail oriented weddings, so we made sure to plan out everything for this one!! We thought our theme was coming together pretty nicely and were pretty psyched for our workshop. And then, the first day we were in Nashville, we stopped by Cedarwood Mansion. And I‘m not going to lie, Justin, Mary, and I, all three of us walked around gasping, pointing, and just about fainting, because Cedarwood? Yea, Cedarwood is perfection personified. We couldn’t have dreamed up a better location for the workshop we had planned. Linda & Karen at Cedarwood are amazing and instantly started throwing ideas into the mix. And just like that we weren’t just psyched, we were bursting at the seams!!

Thank you to our fabulous attendees! You guys blew us away with your enthusiasm and genuine willingness to learn!! We feel blessed to know you! Next time we’re down in Nashville, we’ll have to get together for some biscuits at The Loveless Cafe!! : )

We love putting these workshops together but we can’t do it alone!! A huge thank you to everyone who helped bring our vision to fruition!

Karen and Linda put together this AHHH-mazing alter for us as a surprise! How awesome are they?!? And the vintage truck? Cedarwood seriously has everything!

We used whisks as place cards and stuck them in a vintage crate full of flour. The recipe garland and mason jars added to the festive mood we were setting for the rest of the “reception”. Cute little whisk tags courtesy of Invitations Ink!

We love to have our bridal parties do something unique. So we put together this photobooth to have something to play with! We also put together a table nearby, utilized the truck and had a few props like bowls of flour and utensils for the bridal party to have fun with!! It instantly made the images just a little more fun!!

A few scene setters and a delicious head table covered in flowers by the phenomenal Chase Rivers!!

Come one! How cute are Tiffany and John?!?

More gorgeous details. The hanging mason jars were already there!! How beautiful is Cedarwood?!? More flowers by Chase!! GORGEOUS! And our aged recipe cards cards hung with care! And um, Tiffany? You are STUNNING!!!

A different perspective of the head table set in Cedarwood’s beautiful barn!!

Loveless biscuits!!! A sweet dreams table with cherry cobbler served in jars and jam for the guests! Cute little tags by Invitations Ink! They seriously came through for us with less than two days notice!! We can’t thank them enough!


Our favor table! Pick a flour! :) And Jonathan looking every bit the dapper groom!

    You guys have this, "Walk Through A Wedding" thing down-to-a-tee. I just love it. I especially love: the alter, the vintage Coca-Cola crate with the bottles, and that first shot of the bride & groom kissing on the swing. So adorable. And such a unique/cute theme. ;o) Can’t wait to see the next one!!

    What’s funny is that I recognised Jody Gray just from seeing that little bit of her chin and her stance. They’re such a beautiful couple!

    This session is mag but I don’t want to repeat myself since I already left a comment on SMP. Okay, fine. You’ve twisted my arm! I love the feel of this! Can’t wait for you guys to do this workshop in California!
